Hi . . . I'm currently hosting a bunch of mail accounts on a shared server, and every time a virus comes out, everything gets clogged up.  For that reason (and others), I'd like to start hosting my clients' mail on my own server.

Two things:
   I need a mail solution with a nice webmail interface
   I need the ability to add/delete users and perform administrative tasks through the use of my own .NET code

I appreciate the help . . thanks very much ;)

Michael

Exchange is too expensive for me.  From what I understand, I'd have to buy a $67 user CAL for each email address, which is unaffordable right now.

Here's the thing: I have many clients, each needing an email address, and I'd like the users to be able to add / edit users through a web interface I make.  I don't want the end-user to have to put in a purchase order for a CAL, then wait for it, then add the new email address.

I'd love to do it w/ an open source mailserver, but the extensibility is important, and I'm guessing any such solution would require PHP, not .NET.  However, I'd still be interested to hear of those solutions if anyone has some good ideas.

well you could use anything that supports LDAP and handle the backend in .net (i.e. creating users)

Okay . . . this is what I'm looking for; please elaborate.  Do you mean that .NET has built-in LDAP functions?
